Gov. Larry Hogan announced that the April 28 primary would instead be held on June 2. Officials considered conducting the entire election by mail but did not believe they had enough time to make that work, Mr. Hogan said. “Like other states have done, all the primary elections will be postponed until June, which gives everyone time to prepare,” Mr. Hogan said. “Free and fair elections are the very foundation of American democracy, and while there are many valid reasons for unease and uncertainty right now, ensuring that the voices of Maryland citizens are heard shouldn’t be one of them.” Mr. Hogan said that a special election in Maryland’s Seventh Congressional District to replace the late Representative Elijah E. Cummings would not be rescheduled from April 28. But that election will, in fact, be run entirely by mail — the first time the state has done so for a congressional election.
